US Foods ex­ec­u­tive to head AquaBounty

Fish Farmer - - World News -

AQUABOUNTY Tech­nolo­gies, the Amer­i­can com­pany noted for its re­search and devel­op­ment of ge­net­i­cally mod­i­fied fish, has ap­pointed US Foods se­nior vice pres­i­dent Sylvia Wulf as its new chief ex­ec­u­tive and ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor.

She is highly ex­pe­ri­enced in the food in­dus­try and pre­vi­ously held se­nior po­si­tions with Tyson Foods Inc, Sara Lee Cor­po­ra­tion, and the Bunge Cor­po­ra­tion. She is cur­rently on the board of di­rec­tors and the ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee of the Na­tional Fish­eries In­sti­tute.

Her ap­point­ment is thought to have been planned to co­in­cide with the com­pany’s de­vel­op­ing em­pha­sis on the com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion of AquAd­van­tage Salmon, now that the ma­jor­ity of the re­quired reg­u­la­tory hur­dles have been passed. She re­places Ron­ald Sto­tish, who is mov­ing into a new role with the com­pany.
